Episode 12: The secrets of aging well, with Dr. Frank Lipman

Season #1 Episode #12

When it comes to aging well, Dr. Frank Lipman is one of the world’s leading authorities. For more than thirty years he’s been practicing what he likes to call ‘good medicine’, focusing on increasing health rather than waiting to treat disease. Widely recognised as a leader and trailblazer in functional and integrative medicine, Dr. Lipman believes good health is about so much more than simply the absence of disease – it’s a holistic state of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social wellbeing. 

Author of several best-selling novels, including ‘The New Rules to Aging Well’, he’s also the founder of New York’s Eleven Eleven Wellness centre, and the Chief Medical Officer at The Well, also in New York.
